I got gow3 on wednesday and had my first online session last night. The first chapter of the story mode did nothing for me as it was full of exploding locusts (annoying!). But I loaded up the team deathmatch mode and was blown away. The extra 6 month delay seems totally worth it. The mp maps are a lot less flat then gow1 and 2 and the detail is amazing. The animation on all the characters is really fluid and crisp. My one major complaint is the sawed off shotgun. It's the worst thing in the entire game its the perfect weapon for all those people who use to cheat online in gow2. I saw someone 2 piece with it last night and that was horrid.

The horde 2.0 mode is massively fun and the diversite in monsters really causes a lot of omg wtf is that moments, the added elements of fortifications really adds a dimension of co op that is essential in getting through all 50 waves (we only made it to 39!!).

The achievements dont look as much of a challenge as gow1 or 2 but they'll probably add to this with dlc.

My overall feeling of gow3 was "wow, this game is a lot better then the first 2". Which is exactly what i want in a sequel. (unlike yearly cod installments of hit or miss titles). A sequel should be special, new, evolving and essential which this game has in spades from great dream like cut scenes to pure adrenaline pumping action.

I'm now back on xbox live and will playing a lot of gow3 over the next 6 months so feel free to add as always and holla me for a game!

i agree with everything you said, especially about the sawed-off shotgun...that thing is just terrible, you cant hit the broad side of a barn with it but apparently some people have perfected it somehow...this installment of gears is by far the best and the one thing that did it for me is the addition of BEAST mode, that game mode is INSANE it is really fun being the loctus, in a horde mode type game ,for once trying to kill off the humans

Your really going to enjoy this game I'm sure! After further playing I feel gow3 is finally on a par with Cod and Halo. The delay was well worth the extra 6 months.

Finished it about half hour ago ready for my insane run through now which we are going to do 4 man. Pretty well crafted story start to end. The end was satisfying the dlc should be good too.

a little late on this but this game is much more fun than the last,more depth to it I think with beast mode and co-op arcade makes it enjoyable! gears events will extend the life of this game as will the dlc which should be free Very Happy! 13 onyx medals @ level 82 now but working on all so will be keeping me busy for a long time,enjoy!
